What's a blonde to do when she's been ordered to stay home because of foul weather?
She day dreams...
Of warmer weather
Crystal blue water
Bright white sandy beaches
ohhh the smells....salt water and fresh air
The sounds of the ocean
Hubby's and my first date...
Carl Johnson's Park in North Fort Myers, Florida
Picking up the sand dollars from the beach...
Me, walking barefoot in the sand. Hubby in jeans protecting his ghostly white legs
I found a glorious 8 ft long piece of driftwood
to which my date carried all the way back to his truck for me
After he shared a look with the Parks & Recreation's Officer
Those unspoken male words
That spoke volumes
Only.... to someone with testosterone
I'm carrying this back for her
Because she asked me
Because she smiled at me when she asked
I still have the driftwood
although it's now cut into smaller pieces and protruding out of an antique olive bucket
But I will always remember that day
Trying to come up with a plausible explanation as to why this 6 foot gentleman was carrying an 8 foot long stick and why I was trying to hide it....any way I could
we were I was stealing it....
from a park!
Just so I could have a free curtain rod
I didn't think anyone would understand my reasoning
It was for the most perfect pair of purple drapes a woman could ever own
That's what this blonde is day dreaming about on this cold wintery day
Warmer summer days....
